The King’s Leash

Huzzah! Today is the publication day for The King’s Leash, my seventh novella of The Fay Morgan Chronicles.

Book 7

What’s going on in Fay Morgan land? Well, to start, Morgan le Fay is in a terrible mood. Not only is she the unwilling master of her best friend, the djinn Lila, but Lila’s boyfriend has been made Sheriff of Seattle by some mysterious force. He won’t explain how or why, and wears a strange silver star upon his hip.

Soon Morgan and Merlin find themselves exploring a faerie hill hidden in the middle of Seattle. The famed witch and wizard go there to stop a violent creature, but what they find sets in motion a series of events that Morgan could not have possibly imagined. It drags everyone into its twisted and gray web, where everything comes at a price, and even kings wear leashes.

I love The King’s Leash, and I hope you will too! Also, while you are at my website, please feel free to sign up for my newsletter. Thanks!

Writing and Rewriting and Writing Some More

I’ve had my head down rewriting a book I wrote that is rather magnificent, and uh, with some distance and perspective, was rather lacking in some plot and drama.

It’s a hard book to work on because I love it and I don’t want to break it. It’s a hard book to work on because the main character is clever, clever, clever and so nothing gets by her and any time anything odd is going on she is very aware of it. Note to self: make the next protagonist more bovine.

It’s a great book to work on because I love it and its themes of resistance and hope in the face of large and powerful things. My partner says that’s what makes it a climate change book, even though it has nothing to do with climate, because it teaches anyone who reads it some of the tools we need in facing head on the people and systems destroying the planet. I strive to be the writer he thinks I am.

There is the seventh Fay Morgan Chronicle book coming out and I’ve had a hard time coming up with a title, but I think it’s going to be The King’s Leash. I love it and hope you will too.

What else? The way of the blog, these days, is a hundred spammy comments a day, damn the robot-zombie-spam army, so I’ve rather given up on being comment-sisyphus. If you have any legit communication, please use the ‘contact me’ link and it will shoot me an email.
